Sarah Scotchman studied at Central Saint Martins in London, gaining a distinction in art & design. She is a figurative artist who creates fine art pieces capturing the sensuality and elegance of the female form.
Sarah Scotchman is fascinated by the beauty, softness and curves of the female form, as well as the points of the body and the shapes it can create, believing that lighting is essential to the mood and atmosphere of her work. The pieces can vary from strong, bold, high contrast images to delicate and yielding pieces.
To produce a new piece of art, Sarah starts with either an idea for a pose or a vision of the final image and works with her husband, professional photographer Chris van Sadler (aka El Diablo Blanco, fine art photographer and winner of the Photographer’s Eye award 2013) in their studio to capture this initial impression. From studying these photographs, Sarah produces original pieces of art in her chosen medium, usually in pencil, charcoal or paint. Her original Fine Art pieces then form the basis for the image which is later screened onto her various metal leaf backgrounds. Every print in the Metal Leaf Collection has been gilded & hand finished by Sarah, making each variable limited edition print unique.
